Hello! My name is Emily and I’m from Michigan. This blog is focused mainly on infertility and those struggles, but it also touches on some normal, everyday things. My husband and I have been trying to conceive (TTC in internet lingo) since February 2012. I was diagnosed with PCOS in November 2012 finally after months of long, irregular, anovulatory cycles. In January of 2013 I saw an RE for the first time, and we did a cycle of Femara– I had no response. We’ll soon be starting another Femara cycle, upping the dosage. My doctor started me on Femara mid-cycle (thus calling that CD3), based on this study from Wayne State University on the use of Provera as it relates to pregnancy achievement and sustainability in patients with PCOS. My guess is we will be approaching next cycle the same way, but I have to go in for betas tomorrow morning to confirm my un-pregnantness. On the bright side, we’ll be moving on to the next cycle after this, which is refreshing. On that note, hello! Feel free to comment, I welcome all 🙂

  1. Hi Emily! Thanks so much for the follow! I am from Michigan, too, though I live in Toledo now. I’ll always be a Michigan girl! I hope your next cycle brings you more of a response to the Femara, and that you’re not on this road for a terribly long time. I hope this blog brings you some good contacts and friendships from around the IF community, and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions I might be able to help with!! 🙂

    • Hello, Tracy! I actually found your blog through my friend Kristin N. (You know her!). Thanks for the return follow and well wishes! I enjoy reading your blog, it’s pretty upbeat and who doesn’t like menstrual poetry?!

      • I do know her! 😀 What a small world! Like I said, if you ever need anything – a recommendation on a doctor in the area, advice on medication side effects, or someone to vent to – be sure to let me know! XOXO
